My parents took my brother’s coming out okay. They were angry/sad at first but they came to terms with it. They may not acknowledge it but it’s better than focusing negatively on it. My and my brother agreed that it would be better if he didn’t invite discussion about his sexuality until he is at least 18. I think the main problem mum had was that he didn’t trust her enough to tell her before and the fact that he knows his sexuality means that her boy is finally growing up. My dad is different. He is still in denial, calling it a phase but he is accepting it somewhat. Family life nearly back to normal.
So, my parents have just found out that my little brother’s gay. How the hell do I support both my little brother and my parents when my parents are homophobic and my little brother is having a really really tough time just for being who he is?
The right to free speech (if you live in a country that allows you that) means the government won’t put you in jail for what you’re saying. It doesn’t protect you from other people telling you to shut the fuck up.
PARDON ME WHILE I FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE EVER.
I just have to say that one can accept religion and science at the same time. Maybe not an institutionalized strict order that has no room for free thought but you can accept that the incredible feats that science has uncovered are divine in their own right and that the divine nature of science can be your god
